Shrewsbury and Atcham Borough Council

Since late summer, ET has been working with Shrewsbury and Atcham Borough Council to help them offer an air quality data service to residents and interested parties.

Though the council already had some emissions monitoring in place, this is the first time it has been able to provide detailed information from the town's traffic hotspots. Given Shrewsbury's narrow medieval streets, traditional monitoring stations were too bulky to allow them to be positioned in the places where emissions were at their highest.

Thanks to ET's compact RoadBox, which has a very small footprint, the data can now be collected from the areas most affected and fed into the new air quality data section of their website, also provided by ET.

David Spode, from Shrewsbury Borough Council, said: "We were able to secure funding for the equipment and the website from Defra, which other local authorities should bear in mind when thinking about updating their air quality monitoring."
